When the Super Bowl ends Sunday, win or lose, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is likely to exchange texts with one man. When Brady was 12, he met Tom Martinez at a football camp at the College of San Mateo in California and has sought the coach's assessment of his performance after every game in his career. But in December, the conversation turned from the NFL star's skills to Martinez's health, after Brady learned that Martinez was struggling on dialysis and awaiting a kidney transplant at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
